We'll see if he even plays in the opener, but if he does, Washington allowed the fourth most points to fantasy running backs last year. I would expect the Texans to ease him back into action, not give him 25 rushing attempts against a NFC East opponent.
Martin is an average flex play against a tough Carolina defense. His only hope to tally respectable fantasy points is for the Buccaneers to throw him the ball and let him make plays in space.
